Homecoming is the sequel to Ghostgirl, in which our heroine Charlotte meets her demise (chokes on a gummy bear) and ends up in the afterlife (Dead Ed: high school for dead teens). In Homecoming, Charlotte and her classmates have graduated from Dead Ed, and are now staffing a helpline for troubled teenagers, where the ghosts act as the consciences of the callers. In the land of the living, things are rocky between Scarlet (the BFF) and Damen (the cute boy), and Petula (the most popular girl at school) has landed herself in a pedicure-induced coma. With the afterlife somewhat lacking in excitement, Charlotte will do her best to help her friends.
The Ghostgirl books pretty much need to be read in order, so get Ghostgirl first, then Homecoming. They are funny, full of great quotes and big colorful characters. Charlotte is full of insecurities and loneliness, but she is truly a good friend and a kind person. This is an entertaining story.
